MJ's Bobcats have lost 16 straight games, on pace for worst winning percentage in NBA history
CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) ' Six-time NBA champion Michael Jordan continues to struggle as a team executive in the league.
The Jordan-owned Bobcats are 3-26 this season and flirting with NBA futility.
Because of the lockout-shortened season Charlotte won't challenge the 1972-73 Philadelphia 76ers' record of 72 losses. However, the Bobcats have lost 16 straight games and have a worse winning percentage than that infamous 76ers team with the All-Star break fast approaching.
Bobcats guard Matt Carroll says the team is well aware of the numbers, saying, "everybody wants to make history but you don't want to make history that way" and "you don't want to be that team."
Jordan isn't talking as the losses continue to mount. The Bobcats visit the Toronto Raptors on Friday.
